Roma Coach Eusebio Di Francesco is “not bitter” about Malcom’s last-minute switch to Barcelona.
Bordeaux had accepted a bid for the winger, and he was due to fly out to Italy on Monday night, ahead of a medical on Tuesday.
However, the Catalan side came in with an offer at the 11th hour and refused to let the Brazilian board the plane, and ultimately he decided to sign for Barça.
“You’d have to ask Monchi about it,” Di Francesco shrugged, speaking to Sky.
“I’m not bitter, I’m sorry for how things went but if someone is to arrive then an even stronger player will come.”
